This is left as a way to abort a rebase if you change your mind just
before actually executing it. This also works parallel to committing
with an empty commit message.

You can just use `git reset --hard <commit to rollback to>`  to
discard all commits after the given commit (Unless they're part of
another branch, of course). `git reset --soft` if you want to keep the
state of your current working directory.
